Arab States Give Qatar Two More Days to Accept Demands

"Publication of the review is a decision for the prime minister" the Home Office said
Mae Harvey | 04 July, 2017, 00:54

That was the day that Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Egypt and Bahrain issued Qatar a 13-point list of demands and gave it 10 days to comply. The four nations also initiated an economic blockade, thereby isolating the small, but oil- and gas-rich nation's border from Saudi Arabia, its only land link to the rest of the world for imports.

Qatar's foreign minister, carrying a handwritten letter from the country's ruling emir, has arrived in Kuwait amid a diplomatic crisis engulfing his nation.

The demands include closing a Turkish military base in Qatar, and shutting down Al Jazeera.

Saudi Foreign Miniter Adel a-Jubeir said last week that the list of demands was "non-negotiable".

Qatar has called the charges baseless and says the demands, including closing Qatar-based al Jazeera TV and ejecting Turkish troops based there, are so severe that they seem meant to be rejected.

Qatar's response to the demands was delivered Monday to Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmed Al Sabah, Kuwait's emir, by Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al Thani.

The extension of the deadline comes shortly after three Gulf leaders had separate conversations with US President Donald Trump on handling the situation.

"UAE diplomats have suggested either suspending Qatar from the Gulf Co-operation Council, the regional trading bloc, or seeking to impose sanctions on countries that continue to trade with Qatar".

Al Thani repeated on Saturday that Qatar is willing to sit down and negotiate under the right circumstances. No reason was given for the abrupt cancellation but sources in Riyadh say the diplomatic standoff with Qatar is one of the reasons for the cancellation.

The closure of the Al-Jazeera tv will be requested on Wednesday by the diplomats.

Gabriel is on a tour of the Gulf region, where four Arab states have cut diplomatic and commercial ties with Qatar over claims that it is financing militant groups. Qatari citizens were ordered to leave the countries and various steps were taken against Qatari companies and financial institutions.
